Productive Combination: Kant, Universal Human Rights, and the Net.

Video on #egypt and #jan25 via @birgittaj

Quote from the Video: "We will not be silenced, whether you are a Christian, whether you are a Muslim, whether you are an atheist, you will demand your goddamn rights, and we will have our rights, one way or the other. We will never be silenced."

Tweet from @ericgarland: I think that the differences between the discussions in Davos and Cairo today are telling about this moment in history.

Tweet from @adrielhampton: U.S. has worst economic inequality in 80 years. Egypt should be a wake-up call here, too.

Tweet from @dtapscott: Mid East. #WEF #Davos. Democracy is becoming horizontal and not vertical because of social networks.

I. Kant was right. His categorical imperative is as crucial as maybe never been before.
